Leunig on violence

Learning Goal:I will understand Leunig’s idea that violence and cruelty should be acknowledged.

slide3

‘I had held the theoretical view that if you eat meat you had better be prepared to kill the animal. Perhaps in my youthful sensitivity I felt betrayed and isolated because I was being cast into something that I felt all meat eaters should face but were mostly refusing to…’

Questions:What is Leunig’s perspective about meat-eaters?What experiences led him to form this reality?Do you have the same perspective? Why/Why not?

So for Leunig, eating meat when you don’t kill animals is akin to sending people to war without experiencing it yourself.

  • There is a lack of integrity in those who ‘sign with an elegant golden pen’.
Did you have something similar? What other ideas did you come up with?
